3:30 pm update from Chief Meteorologist George Flickinger WSET:
-The storm is arriving later. Most locations won't see any significant snow until after midnight.
-Because the timing is later, this means snow will continue after sunrise.
-And because snow is falling after sunrise and possibly toward Noon, snow totals are lower, especially east.
-The Rivermont, Boonsboro and Forest parts of Lynchburg should have slightly more snow than Campbell county.
-I'm not optimistic about snow for Danville and South Boston-- too warm. You will have a wintry mix including just rain.
-Except for the mountains, high temperatures reach the upper 30s and lower 40s on Sunday afternoon.
-Worst time to drive: anytime before Sunday Noon. Main roads should be slippery though passable during afternoon, depending on how much they've been plowed.
-Refreezing Sunday night and Monday morning. Frigid! Lows near 15. Very slippery neighborhoods.
-Widespread school cancellations are likely Monday morning.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the Roanoke, Lynchburg and New River Valley areas.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Danville and Southside.
Snow moves in tonight, ending by noon on Sunday. Total accumulations:
- Lynchburg and Central Virginia, The Highlands, The Roanoke Valley, & The New River Valley: 3-6”
- Danville and Southside: 1-3”
- Areas right along the Mountains and in the Higher Elevations: 5-9”
